Peter Jackson announces 3rd Hobbit Film!

Peter Jackson just made the announcement over on his Facebook page that the 2 upcoming Hobbit movies will become 3 upcoming Hobbit movies!

“We know how much of the story of Bilbo Baggins, the Wizard Gandalf, the Dwarves of Erebor, the rise of the Necromancer, and the Battle of Dol Guldur will remain untold if we do not take this chance.  The richness of the story of The Hobbit, as well as some of the related material in the appendices of The Lord of the Rings, allows us to tell the full story of the adventures of Bilbo Baggins and the part he played in the sometimes dangerous, but at all times exciting, history of Middle-earth.

So, without further ado and on behalf of New Line Cinema, Warner Bros. Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Wingnut Films, and the entire cast and crew of “The Hobbit” films, I’d like to announce that two films will become three.”

So, what do you think? Good idea? Bad idea?

Blatant cash in, or a director who’s also a fan that wants to see more of Tolkien’s world on screen?

  1. Peter, don’t worry, these three films are going to great!

    I can understand why people would be concerned about it being stretched into 3 films, but you would be hard pressed to deny that this film couldn’t be in more capable hands.

    I’m hopeful that PJ will pull this off…but the Hobbit isn’t Lord of the Rings and I hope he isn’t just trying to create another epic and ignoring the aspects of the Hobbit (its subtlety and more lo-fi charms) a stand alone work in its won right.

  4. The Kingslayer says:

    Great news.

  5. Andrew says:

    I think PJ has easily proven his dedication to the material already and frankly if a job’s worth doing it is worth doing comprehensibly.
